Eutelsat declaration on transfer of broadcast clients to Hot Bird™ 8 satellite from Hot Bird™ 2
Wednesday, March 14th, 2007

Eutelsat Communications has confirmed that all broadcast clients formerly using the Group’s Hot Bird™ 2 satellite were transferred in the night of March 14 to Hot Bird™ 8. The transfer, which implies no change in reception parameters for DTH homes and cable operators, was carried out as a precautionary measure after an anomaly was observed on Hot Bird™ 2 in the satellite’s power sub-system. This anomaly is currently under full investigation.
